Semi sweet chocolate - 225gms chopped
Unsalted Butter - 75gms, cut into 6 pieces
Eggs - 3 large separated
Sugar - 1/4cup
Whipping cream - 1 cup
White chocolate shavings
In a large bowl, set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter and stir until smooth. Beat egg yolks and sugar with your electric mixer until thick enough to form a ribbon that takes a few seconds to dissolve — this will take about two to four minutes to achieve. Whisk yolks into chocolate mixture. Into a separate bowl beat the egg whites until they just hold soft peaks. Fold the whipped cream and beaten whites into the chocolate mixture, gently but thoroughly. Transfer to 8 (4 ounce) ramekins and sprinkle with the white chocolate shavings. Let the mousse set in the fridge for about an hour before serving.
Tip: The mousse will keep for upto two days in the refrigerator.
